I really just want to tell him almost any program will show results since high schoolers will have newb gains and save his money. However, he's worried about "non adaptive" programs that won't transition to over sports, and BFS claims to have programs for different sports both in and out of season. We have a lot of two and three season athletes. Again, I just want to tell him that if kids aren't lifting because they are playing baseball/soccer/track, then no program will work.

I did BFS in high school. It's good for sports programs -- most days have some component of both upper and body. Good for newb gains. Part of the program also gives them packets to track their lifts which is CRITICAL in that population since they won't progress otherwise.

I personally wouldn't do BFS for anything other than sports performance, though.

I'm god damned amazing at fixing pain, I should hire out my services. Do much better work than pretty much every chiro or massage specialist I've seen.

I did however split my toe open on a door frame yesterday and had to squat.. sock soaked up blood pretty grossly due to the pressure, can't do much to fix that.

Getting past the 225 lb bench press was even better. Bench is at 285 and hoping to get 295 in two weeks. I want the 3 plate bench!

Now weighing at around 222 lbs... such a good feel. But so much swole hate going on frown.gif

Thinking about getting into lifting weights - to lose 5-10kg of fat and gain 5-10kg of muscle.

 

There's a few gyms in my town, there's also crossfit, or I could buy some of my own weights. Or I could do cardio or swimming, but I don't know that they'd help gain much muscle.

 

Any good links to check out about how to work out what's good to do? More interested in learning more before plonking down time or money.

 

Any help appreciated.

Inb4 Crossfit h8

Crossfit doesn't get a lot of love itt. FWIW, my wife enjoys it. If you want to be social, it's more appealing. However, Crossfiters can be borderline douchebag (find that video a few posts back). If you just want to get 'in shape,' it's fine but find a good gym. Coaches are supposed to go through a certification process, but you'll be expected to do/try the daily workout from day one. Be careful if they expect you to snatch/clean on the first day and don't offer proper instruction. Also, I think (and most of here will probably agree) that speed of completion is a poor metric for one's progress.

If you want to gain muscle, try one of the programs regularly mentioned on here. Lift, eat, sleep, and stick to your program. Depending on your experience level, find some brahs to lift with or a good coach to get you started.

Just googled some pics of BBers and strong guys at my height (6'3). I think I have to revaluate my goal weight. 220-230 lean seems more like it. Such a long way to go frown.gif
post #35018 of 47738
Btw, I've stalled hard on bench. Stupidly tried to increase my 5RM by 10 pounds three weeks ago and only managed four reps. Same thing the week after. Today I deloaded 10 pounds but could still only get 4 reps, which basically means it has decreased.

Thinking I should switch to close grip bench for a couple of weeks to get my tricep strength up. Sounds good? Will eat more too, of course.

so you want to put on 50lb of muscle?
post #35020 of 47738
Haha, yup. Don't everyone IIT want that? No idea of it would even be possible for me at all, with gear or not.

One step at a time. Current short term goals are 275 squat, 300 DL, 200 bench and a BW of 200.

Edit: 230 pounds at the top of a bulk and then a cut would probably be a bit more realistic. 230 lean is pretty huge.

Whether you make it to the gym consistently or not is going to have way more of an impact right now than which program you pick.  Pick whatever you think you'll be more likely to do.  Crossfit has trainers to spur you on, but barbell training will take like 30 minutes 3x a week for pretty good results.

 

Starting Strength is a really good introductory book.

Ever since I started going to the gym, I've been doing so as an illegal gymiggrant. An old friend of mine had a pass for the New York Sports Club network that he didn't use, he just bought it on a whim cause it was a huge deal $20 a month for life. He never used it, I started using his membership, no one was the wiser, I even told them I wanted a new picture so when I scan in my face pops up.

It was perfect, regularly this place is $79 a month, and his membership would let me go to any club in the city. Would work out very well cause wherever I was there would be a gym nearby, even used it a bunch of times just to shower after leaving from a one night stand.

Thing is, I hardly talk to this kid anymore, and he let his membership lapse; now I can't get into any gym because apparently he stopped paying his bill. Huge inconvenience, my school gym does not have a squat rack, and the showers suck. Plus having to bring and then carry around a wet towel all day sucks dick.

Thinking of just calling him and telling him to switch the card on the a account from his to mine, and it'll be like my account, just his name on the pass code and shit but who cares. Thing is like I said I don't speak with him at all, I don't think he even realizes I still use his membership. Fuckkkkk

i mean it would never hurt to ask.

if you're still a student there's a pretty intense discount i'm pretty sure

Pulled 300 x 2 hook grip. It's coming a long, doesn't hurt as much. My booty is starting to shoot up though after my first or second rep during sets.
